Tesla Model 3 Will Not Debut In March, After All

While the entire world was holding its breath for the new Tesla Model 3, the company officials just announced that this would not happen. Not in March, at least.

However, the audience will be given a pre-version of Model 3, named Model X SUV, which represents the first stage before launching Model 3.

Some pictures of the long waited Tesla Model 3 have been released, after all, long before the technical data might become available. The latter shall be made public closer to the launching event.

Judging by that, we might just calm down until 2017, when we have the chance to see the real Tesla Model 3.

How looks the factory where Tesla is building its new Model X?

Over the past decade Tesla has grown from ambitious upstart into a global leader in electric vehicles. Its Model S sedan has set a performance benchmark for competitors looking to enter the segment, and today it will sell its first Model X sports utility vehicle.

Both cars are made in a factory in Fremont, California. As you might expect from an Elon Musk-run company, Tesla’s factory is one of the most advanced automotive production facility in the world. It’s equipped with more than a hundred robots.

This week, Business Insider made our way over to Silicon Valley and took a tour of the Tesla Factory. Tonight we’ll be at the delivery of the first Model X, so check back for coverage. Here’s the factory:
